The Samana Peninsula offers superb and varied diving which is why we chose to base our centers there.

Much more than just a dive center, we also offer guided snorkel trips to the fabulous Cayo Levantado (Bacardi Island), Playa Jackson (a sunken island), Playa Ermitanio ( the Ermite beach) and Cabo Cabron National Park.
We are also an Instructor Training Facility.
Having a resident NAUI Course Director and Instructor Trainer, we are able to offer Divemaster and Instructor courses year-round in our Las Terrenas training facility.
Our NAUI Course Director - founder and co-owner - Paul's journey to the Samana Peninsula from Bolton, via Denmark and Spain, has been quite an adventure, but Paul thrives on adventure..

We went there as complete beginners, no diving experience whatsoever. We did the tandem dive and it was absolutely amazing! That was the highlight of our vacation.
